Are you a member of the Realtor® organization? If so, you may need to take an ethics course before the end of this year.
As explained on realtor.org: REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time within four-year cycles. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®. The current four-year cycle will end Dec. 31, 2016.
Realtor®-members: To learn more about the ethics training requirement or to determine whether you need to take an ethics course, please contact your Realtor® board or association.
Brokers frequently contact the Real Estate Commission to inquire about ethics training. However, ethics training is required by the Realtor® organization, not the Commission. Only Realtor®-members are subject to the requirement.
NOTE: Some North Carolina real estate schools offer online and classroom-based ethics courses that satisfy the Realtor® requirement AND provide continuing education elective credit. Click HERE to search the statewide continuing education course schedule.
